[Samba] Browsing Problems

I've got a Samba server and I'd like it to be master browser and 
everything else except domain controller (the customers wants a 
workgroup, not a domain).

Lately a Windows 2003 server was added to the net and then I guess it 
was removed.
I keep getting messages like the following in the logs:

> Apr 10 03:07:51 apocalypse nmbd[57552]: [2005/04/10 03:07:51, 0] nmbd/nmbd_browsesync.c:get_domain_master_name_node_status_fail(488) 
> Apr 10 03:07:51 apocalypse nmbd[57552]:   get_domain_master_name_node_status_fail: 
> Apr 10 03:07:51 apocalypse nmbd[57552]:   Doing a node status request to the domain master browser at IP failed. 

In my smb.conf I have:

>    os level = 99
>    wins support = yes
>    local master = yes
>    preferred master = yes
>    domain master = yes

I read the relevant chapters in the Official How-To, but found no 
answer: how can I get rid of this problem?

  bye & Thanks
